    Only thing in specification I don't like is ARM processor. I am still looking for Intel Haswell based Chromebook in India by Asus or Samsung . The moment haswell based chromebook arrives in India, I am gonna buy it.

    Install linux distribution alongside ChromiumOS using GitHub - dnschneid/crouton: Chromium OS Universal Chroot Environment or #-Link-Snipped-#. Chromebooks are best device out there at it's price range.
